My Students

Our school will prepare 100% of our scholars for high school in hopes of them all graduating high school and moving forward to college and career readiness.

Our mission is to increase high school graduation rates by providing a supportive and flexible learning environment that challenges every learner to find their voice and to exercise choice as they design their own pathways to success.

Our school implements a different teaching/learning model based on the processes that lead to growth. Our students belong to underserved communities in West Philadelphia.

My Project

I am lucky enough to work at a great West Philadelphia public school. Unfortunately, many of my students have so many things to deal with before they even walking through the doors. I am so saddened that hunger has to be an issue. I have a room set up that students can come to and retrieve a snack at any time throughout the day. If they are not focused on their hunger they can focus on their academics and be better students. I am pleased to say that I can see a huge difference in our students' academics since this started.
